Antonovich rips lawsuit against video cameras on trains

Metrolink Director & County Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich criticized the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers and Trainmen who filed a lawsuit to remove recently installed video surveillance systems from Metrolink trains.

"The union's lawsuit to derail Metrolink's efforts to prevent future tragedies is stupid and irresponsible," Antonovich said. "After months of investigations and studies to enhance safety, Metrolink spent over one million dollars installing cameras to prevent deadly mistakes and protect our passengers, the public and our employees.

"The union's troubling message, ‘public be damned,' is reckless. Police officers, bus drivers and others in the service sector are all subject to video recording in the workplace."
